There's good in this book, with special emphasis on 'fun' jewelry (no, I don't mean sarcasm, just genre). Some of the projects look quite interesting. This isn't one for my library, though. I'm passing it along to more of a beginner, with lots of notes about things I think could and should have been done better.
There is plenty of information about tools and equipment as well as general techniques. I am using the Basic Techniques section as a reference for my own work and find it very helpful. The section on fusing silver to copper and silver to silver is especially good.
Of course, there are also instructions to make some gorgeous pieces. The "What You Do" sections are comprehensive, clear, and easy to follow.
If you want to add some color and pizazz to your metalwork, get this book and study it!
The projects give are a natural development of her style and many of the elements do repeat from previous publications.
